Yesterday we had the absolute thrill of kicking off World 2024 at Resorts World Las Vegas. Day 1 of the conference brought together the brightest minds, the boldest ideas, and the most cutting-edge tech in data analytics. Here’s what Day 1 brought us.


MicroStrategy World Keynote: Let the Data Lifeblood Flow

The big stage and bigger announcements! Tuesday kicked off with the electrifying “Let the Data Lifeblood Flow” keynote session that set the tone for the rest of the conference. Phong Le, CEO of MicroStrategy, took the stage to deliver an inspiring vision into the future of analytics and business intelligence.

The core theme of his keynote was that data is the blood that runs throughout organizations, “pumped” throughout companies by its heartbeat, data experts and executives, and brought to life by your end users through functionality and engagement.

But many orgs find themselves running into clogged arteries or weakened organs, facing issues like Big Data Stupor and Application Sprawl.

  • Big Data Stupor: When your people aren’t doing what you hired them to do, creating areas of overcompensation, leading to ungoverned, unhealthy data environments.
  • Application Sprawl: Using at least 11 applications to complete your job everyday, resulting in employee frustration and uncertainty in your business’s future.

But Phong proposed a solution. MicroStrategy ONE with AI.

The game-changing, cloud-native platform lets you break away from Big Data Stupor and Application Sprawl, giving your employees the ability to receive personalized and relevant information in a human way. It’s the next generation of BI. And the best part? This is intelligence that is personalized, trustworthy, and automated, anticipating what your workers need to know and can take action on.

But Phong didn’t stop there; he brought out Vuori, Bayer, and the US Department of State, three of our innovative customers, onstage to share their own experience of how they’re combating Big Data Stupor and Application Sprawl with MicroStrategy ONE.

To bring our opening keynote to a close, Phong ended with this sentiment: “look up.” If we want our organizations to move faster, innovate faster, and grow faster, we have to let our people refocus and give them time to look up or else they will miss the opportunities around them.

With an inspiring keynote kicking off Day 1, we quickly moved into opening the conference floor for Customer Session Highlights and open networking on our Collaboration Floor.
